Hi Sawyer,
I am a high school teacher in Georgetown, Ontario Canada. My environmental students and I run a youth concert at our school every year dedicated to promoting marine biodiversity Sonar 2 Voice. Our next concert is Friday February 15th in the morning and our theme is sharks! Toronto was one of the first cities to go Sharkfin free. Now this is being challenged. We want to help Toronto and other cities stay shark fin free. We have Rob Stewart of Sharkwater coming as keynote speaker and everything. I would love to get you in touch with my students! Perhaps we can connect before the concert and talk about possible ways to help each other as your mission is the same as ours.

I love what you are doing!! I too have a passion for sharks. I believe they are misunderstood animals. They are beautiful creatures that should be protected just like any other animal. Even if someone doesn't like sharks, I'm sure they can still see how barbaric shark finning is. You should create a petition on change.org. You will get thousands of signatures I'm sure. If you start one there, I will post it to my facebook so all of my friends can see it and sign it and pass it on.

Good luck!!

My close friend Rob Stewart directed and produced the movie. In fact, he's releasing his new movie "REVOLUTION" this April in Canada (http://www.therevolutionmovie.com/rob-stewart/). If you'd like to meet him, or speak with him, I know he'd be super excited to do so. Let me know kiddo. Great work. We need more advocates like you in this world!!! Thank you.

Hi Sawyer,

I watched Ellen yesterday and took a peak at your site. I was impressed with the information you presented. I had never heard of shark fin soup. I live in a small town in Wisconsin and there aren't too many Chinese restaurants here, but my sister in law is Chinese. I'll have to ask her about it.

My daughter is 12 and her passion is cats (any kind, but especially lions) She wants to work in a shelter for cats when she's a little older.

Anyway, I just wanted to help you spread the word about the horrible practice of shark finning. Your twitter button and FB share button weren't working, so I just copied them to my twitter/FB and shared that way.

Here in Brazil I have helped quite a project called Tamar, to protect the turtles, monthly sending some money to Greenpeace, and whenever I can I help Seasheperd, you must know. And I think that sharks are next ... we need to stop this cruel and senseless against the Sharks. I pretty you engage in this fight, since little, but I believe that with your education and your attitude, we can still hope that this world better. Congratulations little Sawyer ... besides # ​​1 fan of his father, here in Brazil (I met him in Chicago in 1999, you were not born yet), I will be your fan too .. A kiss and God bless!

Hi Sawyer, any news yet from your teacher? Email me back with any updates when you get a chance. I will also leave my personal email: m_knowlton@hotmail.com

I can help facilitate this for your class or school very easily. We did this before with MAST Academy in Miami and it was so awesome! Love to do it again. Let's touch base soon.

Sawyer, I want to thank your class so much for joining us yesterday. Although our wireless connection was not working as well as I had hoped (I had to get one of my students to hold my iPad and use it for the Skype as my laptop was not cooperating) I think it went over very well. We would like to send your school some thank you stuff for you and your fellow classmates. We took some pics and video as well so I will do my best to see how it turned out and send you something from that material as well. Let's stay in touch Sawyer. And as a parting thought, perhaps the next step would be you meeting Rob...maybe even do a co-interview with him on the Ellen show??You, Rob and Ellen...I think that would be super inspiring! Again, great job everyone. Be in touch. Mr. Knowlton

@Ella @J_Hei Thank you so much! It was so much fun! You should also know that Rob Stewart and I have been tweeting about having Sawyer maybe on the Ellen show with Rob to talk about sharks and Rob's new film. If you look at my latest tweet @sonar2voice you will see it. We would so love to see Ellen do this, it would be amazing and so inspiring. But in the end all we can do is try. Check out the tweets and RT if you can. :)

I also just sent a thank you package to your school from us. Thank you so much for joining us and making the event so extra special!

Hi Mark K, I sent in a question as well as Sawyer ( mine was the second to be read) and I just wanted to say thanks because Sawyer and I are pretty much the only students in 5th grade that really LOVE sharks. STOP THE SOUP!

Hey Sawyer!
My name is Mike and I'm a reporter with WOAI news in San Antonio. I read about your campaign to end shark finning, and stop Texas restaurants from selling shark fin soup. I would love to help you get the message out! I would love to write a story about your hard work, and I need to talk to you on the phone, if that's alright with your parents. When you see this, please shoot me an email at michaelboard@woai.com or call me at 210-736-9731. Thanks and have a great day!

You are all so very welcome! It was a thrill to do this together. I hope this won't be the last time we collaborate on something for sharks. Sawyer, there should be a nice gift of stuff in the mail from us arriving Monday or Tuesday after spring break at your school, fyi. Take care everyone and keep up the great work! :)

It was really nice seeing you today at the capital today. I just want you to know that you're doing such a good thing. This is such a good cause that you have a passion for. If you carry that passion throughout your life with this and other causes, you can truly change the world, one shark fin at a time! Take care and God bless you always!

Hi, My husband and I are shark lovers too, and created a really cute shark character ( Professor Clark the Science Shark ) to help spread the truth about finning. What you are doing is amazing, and we want to help you any way we can, so your work can continue. Any ideas? We live in Florida. Fincerly, Karen Lamberson

Hi Sawyer - I'm an Environmental Scientist in California. Protecting the earth and all its creatures is close to my heart. I'd like to sign your petition but, it is for Texas. I'm a voter and tax payer in California. Would it make a difference if I sign it? What can I do to help you from the west coast?

In my opinion, the media hype is the reason for our fear of sharks. But in the real case, sharks kill only 4 humans on average each year. But we kill millions of sharks each year! The attitude of the media should be changed first!

Hey sawyer, you are a good model for kids. It is a nice thing to do even though you are still young, you can do bigger things when you grow up.

I am afraid of sharks and I like anything with sharks fin, the soup and the food. But I guess it is indeed a problem, they just take the fin and throw all the shark meat.

I guess there are good sharks and bad sharks out there. Hope the sharks don't go instinct.

I am a tween that loves sharks! I have loved sharks for my whole life! I wish that I could help save sharks lives! My website is www.thefriendlyshark.weebly.com and I try to tell people about sharks. I would want to become a marine biologist if I can't be a professional athlete. Great Job!!! Love the website design!!
